15N Avionics Mechanic

Company: Army National Guard
Location: Davenport
Posted on: May 7, 2020

Job Description:

AGE REQUIREMENTS: Must be between the ages of 17 and 35

The communications system, navigation, and flight controls are just a few examples of the dozens of electrical systems that help pilots keep aircraft safely in flight. As an Avionics Mechanic in the Army National Guard, you will make sure these systems and instruments operate properly.

Through training and practice, you will learn how to perform maintenance on tactical communications-security, navigation, and flight control equipment. Specific duties may include: performing operational and preventive checks and alignments on aircraft flight controls, stabilization systems, avionics, and controlled cryptographic equipment; troubleshooting equipment using technical manuals and schematic drawings; and inspecting and maintaining electrical systems that include wiring, electrical connections, and the repair and/or replacement of instruments.

Job Duties
• Maintain common/special tools and equipment
• Maintain shop and bench stock for aircraft avionics equipment
• Some of the Skills You'll Learn
• Basic electronics theory
• Common soldering and systems installation practices

Helpful Skills
• Preference for mathematics and shop mechanics
• Ability to work as a member of a team
• Ability to multi-task

The skills you learn as an Avionics Mechanic will help prepare you for a future with commercial airlines, aircraft maintenance firms, aircraft manufacturers, or other organizations that might have fleets of airplanes or helicopters.

Earn While You Learn
Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to learn. In the Army National Guard, you will learn these valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance.

Job training for an Avionics Mechanic consists of 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you'll learn basic Soldiering skills, and 25 weeks of Advanced Individual Training, including practice in repairing electrical systems. Part of this time is spent in the classroom and part in the field.
